Description Edward muller 2000-01-03 18:30:21 UTC
This should probably be disabled by default for a modern build. The comment
above the code (ftpd.c line 5841) is dated apr-93. The UNIX GURU's here
note that it was probably put in there to work around a bug in an old
version of BIND, which is no longer a problem.

fix:
#undef DNS_TRYAGAIN in config.h.noac


I have a new .spec file and a patch to go along with it if you want.

Changed in 2.6.1-7. Sorry for the delay, our internal package maintainer changed
a couple of times.
